Poets who like beer, we have just the contest for you! Submissions are currently open for the fifteenth annual Dogfish Head Poetry Prize. A prize of $500, publication by Broadkill River Press, ten author copies, and two cases of Dogfish Head Craft Brewed Ales are given annually for a poetry collection written by a poet living in the mid-Atlantic states. Destiny Birdsong, Christopher Salerno, and Michael Dwayne Smith will judge.
Poets currently living in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, or Washington, D.C. may submit a manuscript of 48 to 78 pages by August 15. There is no entry fee.
The winner will be expected to attend a reading and award ceremony at the Dogfish Head Brewery in Lewes, Delaware, in December; lodging at the Dogfish Inn will be provided. Visit the website for complete guidelines.
